So i saw loads of posts on the board people dreading a fact that they tend to shift back to non-veg diet once they switch to veg lifestyle. I believe my mum’s super yum veg food helped me to stick to veg lifestyle. So i thought of sharing few of my fav recepies here on board 🙂
So today’s Recepie is Soybean curry..!!
1 bowl of soyabean (depends on the amount you want to prepare)
1/2 cup of cornflour
1/2 cup of gram flour
1 tablespoon ginger garlic paste
1. If you are using Soybean for this recepie, Soak soybean in boiling water for some 15 minutes, keep it aside for till it comes at skin bearable temperature. Drain of the water, press it little more to take of the residual water. Keep it on a Napkin to soak of extra water.
2. If are using mushroom, wash them nicely before using and cut them in two halves.
3. Take a big bowl, put cornflour, gram flour in it. Add 1 tablespoon of salt, 1/3 tablespoon of red chilly powder in it, 1/2 tablespoon of soy sauce, 2 tablespoon of ketchup. Mix the ingredients and add little water to give mix a texture of a paste.
4.Put Soybean/ Mushroom in the paste and mix well. Leave it aside for sometime.
5. Meanwhile chop finely Onion and Capsicum in longitudinal fashion.
(*Tip: If you want it to be a tear free onion chopping. Chop Onion in two halves and dip it in water and than start chopping. The sulphur vapours which induces tears will get dissolved in water and it’ll leave you with tear free chopping)
6. Take a big vessel for shallow frying. Take off the soybean/ mushroom and shallow fry them. Do not discard the left over paste it’ll be used later. Make sure that you’ll be left with at least 2 tablespoon of paste by the end if it is more than good for you 🙂
7.keep the fried soybean/ mushroom on old newspaper/ paper napkin to soak of the excessive oil.
8. Take a nonstick pan, keep it at low flame add little oil to it. Toss the chopped onions in it, add ginger garlic paste at the same time. Let the onion turn into golden brown color. Add 1 teaspoon of salt (or more according to your taste). You can add diced green chillies if you like spicy food or you could just add 1/4 teaspoon of red chilli powder or not at all. Put chopped Capsicum in it, cover the pan with its lid to capsicum cook, keeping stirring after short interval we don’t want our capsicum to get overcooked. After like 10 minutes take off the lid and add 1/2 teaspoon of soy sauce and 1 tablespoon of tomato ketchup in it. Stir it and again cover it with lid after two minutes take off the Lid.
9. Slightly dilute the left over paste what we prepared with water and add it to the pan containing onion and capsicum. Increase the flame a little and keep stirring for like a minute.
10. Add previously fried Soybean/Mushroom to the pan and stir gently. Cover the pan with the lid for two minutes at low flame. Take off the lid and stir again. Tadaaaa..!!! Your curry is ready 🙂
I Don’t know how many of you have heard of Indian spice known as Chat Masala or Dry mango powder If you little of that at the end on your dish it just enhances the flavor. Oregano powder also if sprinkled little at the end adds a very nice to the dish.
Mushroom- Again a very good source of proteins. mushrooms contain good-for-your-bladder selenium and, like us, they produce vitamin D when exposed to sunlight. Oyster mushrooms are a good source or iron. Plus, they’re low in calories.
Capsicum: * Capsicum improves digestion by increasing stomach secretions.
* It increases metabolism to burn a measurable number of calories at a higher rate.
*Capsicum reduces high blood pressure, protects against some types of cancer and is useful in the treatment of chronic rhinitis.
*Capsicum has been used in folk remedies to treat everything from impotence to liver disease. Loaded with vitamins A, C and beta carotene, peppers are naturally low in fat, calories and cholesterol.
If anyone try it please leave a feedback. Thank you so much 🙂
